Join members of the Better Security, Better Care Programme Board during their session at GovSec UK.

GovSec UK Virtual Confex is a leading government IT security and risk management virtual event.

Session six 3.45 – 5pm: Better Security, Better Care: improving data and cyber security in adult social care.

Storing and sharing information securely is central to the provision of good quality care. From accessing health and care records, to managing HR and financial information, data and cyber security is an issue for everyone in the care sector. The rapid growth in the use of digital technology during the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed the issue even higher up the agenda.

But how do the multiple data and cyber security initiatives work together, and how do they support commissioners, regulators, software suppliers and policymakers – as well as care providers?

Join this session to find out more about how the Better Security, Better Care programme and the Data Security and Protection Toolkit support the key national initiatives on data and cyber security.
